Pusha-T will release his new album DAYTONA on May 25, and one of its songs, "Infrared," appears to contain a lyrical shot at Drake.


A recording of the lyrics in question — "It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin" — emerged on Wednesday during a DAYTONA listening event attended by Complex. In the clip, streaming above, Pusha references the ghostwriting scandal that emerged in 2015 soon after Meek Mill tweeted that Drake "don't write his own raps!" Quentin Miller was identified as a ghostwriter for Drake, a charge Miller denied.

Drake and Pusha-T have traded disses in music over the years. Pusha started the feud on a remix of Drake's "Don't Fuck With Me," and the two rappers continued to trade barbs with Drake most recently responding on "Two Birds, One Stone" from 2017's More Life. Here's the verse in question via Genius:


But really it's you with all the drug dealer stories
That's gotta stop, though
You made a couple chops and now you think you Chapo
If you ask me though, you ain't lining the trunk with kilos
You bagging weed watching Pacino with all your niggas
Like, "This what we need to be on," but you never went live
You middle-man in this shit, boy, you was never them guys
I can tell, 'cause I look most of you dead in your eyes
And you'll be tryna sell that story for the rest of your lives
